Angela Wybrow (Salisbury, Wilts, UK)
Maybe if I pretend to be
Someone else instead of me,
I won’t feel like I want to hide,
Or feel the nerves deep inside.
Maybe if I’m able to put on an act,
I’ll feel the confidence which I lack.
As long as I’m really well prepared,
I’ll look as though I’m not too scared.
I’ll look like I’m a star in the making,
When deep inside, I’m really shaking.
I’ll stand up on stage like my heroine,
And show them that I can really sing.
I’ll be someone else just for a while,
And make my entrance with a smile.
I’ll sing out my song nice and loud,
And make myself feel really proud.
